How can I consider the slip of a cross-laminated timber plate in a wall-liked load?
The slip of a timber wall is computed by using the slip modulus. For a 4 mm nail in a common C24 timber, we obtain a slip of 793.981 N/mm per shear plane. Now, all that is left to do is to consider the mean value of the stiffness and the partial safety factor, which is omitted in this example. The distance of the used nails then gives the necessary longitudinal stiffness of the joint.
